For level dimensions, we've been using this trick for years:

  1. (if it is a different dimension string): drag a copy of the original string, set it to 'static', copy and paste it to your other section/elevation.
  2. select the text that needs to be the same and then select the original text in your copied dimension string
  3. type something and remove it with backspace
  4. the new dimension should now have all the text

 

Not sure if this also works for 'regular' (horizontal) dimensions, since we never change the text there.

They just make this software be more consistent and work as the users suggest it should.

Thanks for reminding me again to not offer work arounds to people making wishes for functionality not implemented yet.
